polls before self-destructing. finally, romney ended up one-on-one with rick santorum. and the two primary night that is kept us up the longest will be the states that will keep us up on tuesday, iowa, and a few weeks later santorum was declared the victor and then ohio. >> we are actually looking at recount provisions in the state of ohio. our models have it that close. >> romney's struggle in ohio was partly rooted in the 2008 new york times op-ed he wrote just weeks after obama won calling for managed bankruptcy but said the government should only guarantee private loans. quote, detroit needs a turnaround, not a check, he wrote. the piece was entitled "let detroit go bankrupt." romney survived the primary gauntlet and let republican super pacs hammer the president on the air. the campaign spend a lot of time defining romney before romney was able to define obama. romney was criticized for taking a week off in july for campaigning about the obama's strategy and for bundling the trip to israel, europe and poland. he announced paul ryan as his running mate but that didn't produce t
cold weather. we were all there with him. john mccain i mean, , rick santorum, rick perry, rudy guiliani cockade bailey hutchison, derek , te champion and olympic skater, i mean, just a whole -- bob macdonald. the great governor of ohio. we just had a great event. the crowd was going -- they were going crazy. it was unbelievable, the support and standing out there and that whether to hear mitt romney. gerri: a critical state and a critical region for the candidate. absolutely true. i have -- i think one of the biggest surprise is the democratic party has done our seniors in florida. a recent poll shows romney with 57 percent of seniors in florida. obama 40% with something that you just could not have predicted because people thought that paul ryan's plan fo dicare, medicaid was going tax absolutely put of seniors. what happened? >> well, they have been spreading their message. all over florida. wonderful everywhere. a senior living in florida. $760 billion from the medicare system. and seniors are recognizing that. recognizing what is going to happen. small businesses are recogn
caucuses identify themselves as evangelicals. they supported rick santorum over romney, many uneasy on romney's past on issues like abortion and his mormon faith. >> but that was then. you said the romney campaign snubbed social conservatives. >> i think he has proved to himself that he's tried to make that out reach to social conservatives as well as economic conservatives. he's daone a good job here in iowa. >> iowa's evangelical voters seem to have moved into mitt romney's camp. the president may place more of a challenge. the catholic voters we spoke with here are split over issues like abortion, funding for contraception, and the government's role in providing for the poor. >> the life issues which many catholics, most catholics, hold dear and central to their faith, but then there's this belief that remains that the democratic party somehow cares for the poor better. i think it comes down to that tension. >> reporter: how big a role does your catholic religion play in your vote? >> i think it's big. i'm an ex-nun. and the group of nuns i'm associated with to this day are pushi
huckabee and rick santorum and others who are thinking about running for president next time. people are going to have to choose up sides and if president obama is leading those negotiations it's going to be an obama deal so for a lot of republicans in congress and around the country they're against it no matter what. they don't care what percentage of the vote he got, how big his mandate is, they'll be against it because it will have revenue in it, new revenue, and they'll be against it. >> rose: because it is -- that vote is influenced by how they perceive the battle they are making for the control of the republican party? >> and they don't like him and anything he stands for and his victory won't change that. and choosing up sides there will tell you a lot about how people are going to approach going forward the next four years of an obama presidency and the fight to redefine the republican party. >> it's going to be -- i mean, regardless of what happens tomorrow i think we come out of this pretty much where we went into it and that's what makes it very disheartening, frankly, as
house. that primary ballot that was so bruises with rick santorum fan newt gingrich and an occasional rick perry shot. then he raised a lot of money throughout the country. headed into three critical debates. the first debate in denver focused the attention of the country on him and on his campaign. now all of that stuff is on the table for the american people to decide whether this man will be their next president. martha: governor romney and his wife ann have placed their votes. an historic moment for them, for their family. ann romney has been right by her husband's side throughout this process. she has been called at points the mitt stabilizer. the one brought in to be her husband's inspiration and comfort and strength and he would say the many the role she played throughout his life. early on you have to remember the mid-section of this race when the charge against him was he was not connecting with voters. he in the last several the weeks and certainly since the debate in denver which was a huge breakout moment for him, was connecting with these crowds in a way we did not see ea
. martha roy. rick santorum. aaron shock. jim tallant. john thune. pat tome. scott walker. mike turner. steve chabis. from the great state of ohio, mary tyalor. mary taylor. >> four more years! four more years! >> are we ready to do everything we can in ohio 2 elective mitt romney and paul ryan, the next president and vice president of the united states? [cheers and applause] as always, a great crowd of the intro west chester, ohio. this is outstanding. i have done a lot of great rallies over the last couple of weeks. i have three simple reasons. i would like to go through them quickly with you. president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state to back on track. we know that is not true. it is the work governor kasich and i have done with to balance the budget and get our state back on track. but we did not raise taxes. we cut taxes. here is my second reason. this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18 years old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago his friends were gathering at our house. i decided
, they overwhelmingly backed santorum, but it seems that they moved into that romney camp, largely because they will oppose obama strongly on the same-sex marriage, and funding for contraception. now the religious vote, when you talk about catholic voters in dubuque, they were not traditionally in the vote, they seem to be split more because how outspoken the president has been on those social issues and health care reform. i will tell you that neither of the groups we have talked to have been thrilled, necessarily, with their choices right now. and i think that is something that is very important, the enthusiasm, to get out to the polls, don was saying that every single vote counts in ohio and here. you need that enthusiasm, and we're not necessarily feeling that in iowa, fred. >> all right, poppy harlow, in dubuque. >>> all right, a critical swing state, yes, florida qualifies. we'll tell you about a sometimes overlooked voting block that could make a difference in the sunshine state. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the
decided by eight votes between rick santorum and mitt romney and then oh, by the way the results flipped two weeks later, i've always worried that that was foreshadowing this nightmare scenario. >> as you talk to us, chuck, i want to note that vice president biden is waiting in line to vote in delaware this morning. we'll keep an eye on that as you and i continue to talk. >> reporter: speaking of vice president biden. under this scenario and people are wondering if you don't get to 270, this would go to the house, so the house would elect the president. the senate would elect the vice president, so under this scenario your most likely outcome romney/biden. >> then we'll know we're in an alternate reality. chuck, let's move on to florida. if it came down to florida being the deciding state, how might that play how the? >> well, here's the issue with florida right now, and this has to do with election challenges, and i'll just put it here to center it up a little bit. there were two big issues in the state of florida this year that came up. one is in palm beach county where 60,000 absentee
, newt gingrich and rick santorum that gave a lot of ammunition to the obama team when they went after mr. romney's time at bain capital and the obama team kept that theme going. >> they won, the president won and should be congratulated and the team should be congratulated because they put together a strategy and tactics that won a race that was very difficult to win but i think they're going to be governing and presiding over an incredibly divided country and unless they figure out a way to unify that and deal with that it's going to be very difficult. >> i got to bring this question to george will. correct me if i'm wrong, george. right after president obama was elected four years ago, went to your house, didn't he, for a dinner party reaching out to conservatives, that was supposed to be the promise of his first term, a person who could heal the division in this country. clearly though he's been re-elected not all that healing has happened. what went wrong in that relation between the president and who is to blame and how much on each side. >> books are already being written about wha
